January 29, 2018

Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar is shattering all the box office records in China and seems like is it’s not going to stop anytime soon.Advait Chandan’s directorial debut is unstoppable in China and continues to strengthen its dream run at the Chinese box office in the coming days.After successfully earning Rs 100 crore, Rs 200 crore and Rs 300 crore in just seven days of the film’s release, now Secret Superstars eyes the Rs 400-crore mark.According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh the film collected $7.56 mn (Rs.48 crore) on January 27, taking the total collection of the film to Rs.376.09 crore ($59.14 mn).With no major competition at the box office, the film can easily cross the Rs 400-crore mark on Sunday.

Considering Aamir’s huge fan base and film’s strong word of mouth, the next challenge ahead of the film is to dethrone Dangal as the highest grossing Bollywood film there. But that is not quite an easy task as Dangal is the highest grossing Bollywood film in China, which stands atop of the mountain with some Rs 1200 crore.

Secret Superstar, featuring Zaira Wasim in the titular role, narrates the story of a young aspiring singer who becomes an overnight star after releasing her first song on the internet that catches the attention of successful yet arrogant music director, Shakti Kumarr (Aamir).Secret Superstar released on October 19, 2017 to a decent box office run in India. But the film is breaking records and making history at the box office in China.Although Secret Superstar is unlikely to enjoy the sustained dream box-office success of China’s leggiest film, Dangal – which had its license extended by distributors for 30 more days in a rare case after its month-long box office haul – the film’s phenomenal success is an exemplification of Aamir Khan’s star-power in China. In fact, Dangal was voted as the Best Foreign Film of 2017 on Douban, which is one of the most influential social networking sites in the country. It must also be noted that Aamir is the most followed Indian celebrity on China’s popular micro-blogging platform Sina Weibo with more than 1 million followers. His media interactions and public appearances over the past one week in the Chinese mainland has impressed moviegoers.

The rapturous welcome Aamir received from Chinese cinephiles during his intercity promotional tour shows how the committed the actor is set to bolster his box-office prowess in the Hollywood-dominated multibillion-dollar market of China. Now, Secret Superstar has set its eyes on the worldwide box-office collection of Sultan, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, and Baahubali: The Beginning to break into the top five highest-grossing Indian films. Secret Superstar has the potential to be the fourth highest-grossing Indian film ever, behind Dangal, Baahubali: The Conclusion and PK. It won't be surprising if the Advait Chandan-directed film, which stars Zaira Wasim in the lead role and Aamir Khan in an extended cameo, becomes the second Indian film to touch the $100 million mark at the PRC after Dangal.

Made at a shoestring budget of $2.4 million, Secret Superstar, which is the first Indian film to have secured a revenue-sharing slot (25%) in China, has earned Aamir a lucrative paycheck of $16.4 million (₹104.5 cr). Secret Superstar will next release in Hong Kong and Japan later this year.
